Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 3/15/12

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter! Have any ideas or comments about the challenges? Post them down below!

The Challenges:
Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3200cR
You will likely be playing two or three games in Firefight Matchmaking today, which includes one game in the Score Attack playlists. A typical game of Score Attack will get you a hundred and twenty kills which is just what you need for this challenge. Even if you fall short, the other challenges will take up the slack. So just ignore this simple challenge, as it is already well taken care of.

J.H. Death Machine - Kill 70 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Grenade Launcher. - 1250cR

If you play a game of 2X Score Attack in the Score Attack playlist, one of your loadout options will be the grenade launcher. In 2X Score Attack, all damage is doubled so it should be even easier to score kills with this, sometimes, troublesome weapon. Aim for clusters of enemies an remember that you can bounce the round into them. Now, you only need seventy kills, which is less than you will typically get in a game of 2X Score Attack so no worries here.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2343cR
This challenge will be the hardest one of the day, but it is a lot easier than it used to be. Playing in the Score Attack playlist, as long as the map is a large, exterior map, you will hopefully see vehicles dropped in fairly often. Beachhead is probably the best map to score vehicle kills in since you see a vehicle dropped in almost every round. Do expect this challenge to take multiple games however. There is no guarantee of getting certain maps or the gametypes that make it easy to kill vehicles (i.e. Rockets, Snipers, or FRG). Expect to play at least two to three games, if not more.

Bulletproof - Complete 3 Rounds in a Firefight Matchmaking game without dying. - 1250cR
Unfortunately, this all needs to be done in a single game, though it would be much easier if spread over the entire day. Hopefully, you can get it done while working on the "Flat Tire" challenge. You need to play Firefight Arcade for this challenge since all other playlists for Firefight are now just one round. Surviving three rounds is often quite difficult but if you teammates are playing and you can find a good hiding spot, you should be set. Do not idle, however, cause and enemy will always find a way to kill you if you idle. Might take you two attempts to get this done.
